Appreciated the check in call from Jim Schaap on our arrival date. Very thoughtful! Can't wait to book this place again!!! Next time for a longer stay. So much to love about this place!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the only place my family plans on staying from now on. The property was incredibly clean upon our arrival and well stocked! The location always perfect, it was a little home away from home for us. Would highly recommend to anyone and we will be back again next year!

Right on the Water on the Quiet Side of Door County

  • 5 of 5

This is a cozy cottage, ideal for a couple who are looking to relax right on the water. It's conveniently located in Jacksonport - north of Whitefish Dunes State Park, Cave Point County Park and Clark Lake. After a long day of activity, this is the ideal place to return to and relax. There are plenty of lawn chairs, a comfortable hammock and variety of beach toys to enjoy on the sand beach. We have our own kayaks, but there is one at the house along with a paddleboard. The house is well maintained and cared for by the owners. Jim, the owner, is great to work with and provides all the house details prior to your arrival. There is WiFi and it works well; however, if you're looking to unplug and get away from the digital life, this is the place to be - take a long walk on the sandy beach, read a book from the great selection the owners provide, lay in the hammock and listen to the birds sing, go for a swim in the cool Lake Michigan water, make a meal on one of the grills (propane or charcoal) - so much go do to relax and unwind.
